I see you poor souls are still in the grip of an nasty looking beatle infestation, so I’m just going to drop this here and go about my biz. Blame Moose.
Music. It’s great, isn’t it? All those sounds and lyrics and feelings. But you know what I really like? That new shit. That inconsequential, disposable, all been done before and better, kids don’t know what they’re doing shit.
So, I’m over here in 2017 (visitors always welcome), and – I gotta say – there’s some ace stuff going on. I think this might prove to be a really, really good year. Yes, that Lorde tune is an authentic banger. Yes, the xx record sounds even better in the sunshine than it did in the cold. Yes, muthafreakin Japandroidsfuckyeah! Yes, Julie Byrne, Laura Marling, Penguin Cafe and all that other music I play at bed time.

Hold tight, here we go…
